New I/O Boost technology in Cohesity DataPlatform provides greater data consolidation, lower total cost of ownership, and high performance for backing up, accessing, and deriving insights from data in all-flash environments.
The higher throughput and greater bandwidth of flash media combined with Cohesity's space-saving technologies mean fewer nodes required to meet performance and capacity requirements.
Depending on the workload and hardware, I/O Boost gives between 2x and 8x faster performance for backing up and accessing data compared to spinning disk storage systems.
It particularly speeds data management tasks for metadata-intensive operations such as deduplication and replication, whether small or very large files are being backed up.
Customers also benefit from faster data reuse, such as cloning backup or file and object data for dev/test or analytics, or when searching for information, scanning for malware, or performing content analysis.
The list of certified all-flash enterprise servers comprises Cisco UCS C220 M5, HPE ProLiant DL360 G10, Dell PowerEdge R640, and Intel Server System R1208WF.
"With today's launch, Cohesity is delivering exciting new data management capabilities for all-flash. The new Cohesity I/O Boost technology, built within Cohesity DataPlatform, provides the type of performance benefits you would expect to see from an all-flash system for backup, and recovery, file and object services, and dev/test at scale," Cohesity vice president of product management Matt Waxman told iTWire.
"Organisations can also bring real-time analytics to all-flash through this offering for faster data insights. The news completes an exciting August for us where we’ve delivered a plethora of data management capabilities for diskless data centres that are rapidly being adopted by enterprises globally."
He added "The Cohesity DataPlatform with I/O Boost makes flash even more affordable, while meeting increasingly demanding SLAs for backup, recovery, file and object services, and data insights.
"There isn't any other solution in the industry that provides complete, flash-optimised data management and is incredibly agile and efficient."
Cisco vice president of product management, cloud and compute DD Dasgupta said "The combination of Cohesity's flash-optimised data management software and Cisco UCS opens up a new world of possibilities for customers looking to reap the benefits of all-flash for high-performance backup, recovery, scale-out NAS, and data insights.
"Together, Cisco and Cohesity can now further manage customers' data requirements, with unified management and automation across Cisco HyperFlex and UCS."
HPE Storage vice president and general manager of collaborative platform development Chris Powers said "Numerous organisations around the world have successfully leveraged HPE expertise to transition their primary storage to all-flash.
"HPE ProLiant DL360 Server for Cohesity DataPlatform now allows organisations to also transition other data and applications to all-flash, and do so with the world's most secure industry-standard server as the foundation. HPE and Cohesity together are enabling organisations to optimise their data protection approach, increase dev/test agility, and enhance compliance with NVMe all-flash and I/O Boost."
